Burns Handed $675,000 For Botched Lip Surgery

British singer PETE BURNS has been awarded $675,000 (£450,000) in damages after a cosmetic surgeon admitted negligence over the singer's botched lip enhancement.
Last October (08), the former Dead or Alive frontman won his case against London Harley Street doctor Maurizio Viel after a lip implant operation left him with scarring, blisters, lumps and discharge.
The star claimed he looked so "repulsive" he didn't leave his house for seven months, leading to him losing his London home and missing out on work.
He had to fly to Italy to undergo more than 100 further procedures between 2000 and 2004 to correct the damage after suffering an adverse reaction to the collagen implants.
Now, he has been handed the massive sum as compensation for his ordeal.
He told the court, "I am just glad the case is now over. It has taken away my life and my career. I saw doctors in London who said the only option was to amputate my lips. I was suicidal.
"It is a terrible experience living with the trauma and worry of injury and disability and to have to re-live and recount the details and circumstances of how your injuries happened for the purposes of evidence for the court."
